  • To continuously adjust the focus and exposure during continuous shooting, set as follows:
    • [Focus Mode]: [Continuous AF]
    • [AEL w/ Shutter]: [Off] or [Auto]


  • When the F-value is greater than F22 in [Continuous Shooting: Hi+], [Continuous Shooting: Hi] or [Continuous Shooting: Mid] mode, the focus is locked to the setting in the first shot.
  • The subject is not displayed in real time on the monitor during continuous shooting in the [Continuous Shooting: Hi+] mode.
  • Continuous shooting is unavailable in the following situations:
    • The shooting mode is set to [Scene Selection] and a scene other than [Sports Action] is selected.
  • When set to [Continuous Shooting: Hi+], [Continuous Shooting: Hi], or [Continuous Shooting: Lo] and you are shooting in uncompressed RAW or lossless compressed RAW, the speed of continuous shooting decreases.
  • When the continuous shooting time is long, the camera may get hot easily. Therefore, depending on the ambient temperature, the power may turn off to protect the product. In that case, wait with the power turned off until the temperature drops sufficiently.
